Readin', Writin', and Rithmatic

(If you missed my DT card post for today's Mo's Digital pencil challenge you can find it here.)
     AHA!  A second post for today.  Bet you weren't expecting that.  LOL  Neither was I, but my craftiness just insisted that instead of doing housework I put this card together.  I just couldn't say no! :-)
     I'm playing with another Whimsy and Stars Studio image today.  This is "Back to School".  I had fun making the parts of this card "school like".  I used a MFT Die-namics die to give the test paper a notebook edge.  The blackboard behind him is actually chalkstock.  LOL  That sounds funny doesn't it, but I promise it's just like a chalkboard.  I used a white gel pen to write on mine, but chalk works perfectly well too.
     There are still a few back to school challenges out there so I'd like to enter my card into the following ones:

Cute Card Thursday--back to school
Going Grey with Scrap-Creations--kids theme
Use It Tuesday--all about school (I think I've used two clips out of the package LOL  the star paper clip is a hoarded item too.)
The Pink Elephant--back to school
There She Goes--back to school
Catch the Bug--photo inspiration

  14. You have wonderful penmanship Tracy. I thought that was a stamp! I always get so nervous when I go to write a sentiment as a finishing touch on a project. Looks like I put a sharpie in the hand of an infant and said, "go for it!" Completely ruins the entire thing, but THIS...I love this. Loved that title post too...hahahaha!
